Iraqi Information Minister Alive And Well

MSSBBC has the story.

Former Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf - dubbed "Comical Ali" during the Iraq war - handed himself in to US forces but was released after questioning, an Arab TV station says.

"Why, of course, the people don't want war, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders... All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

Just this once, I promise

I'd made a conscious and deliberate decision to stop (or more accurately, not start) making war posts, because anyone who wants to soak up the Shock-n'-Awe™ has more than enough media outlets catering to that whim. The following quote was too funny to let pass by, though (via CNN):

Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Sahef said the real situation in Umm Qasr is different from its portrayal in the media.

"Those Iraqi fighters, those heroes at Umm Qasr, are teaching the American and British invaders a lesson," he said. "Those Iraqi fighters are slapping those gangsters on the face, and then when they flee, they will kick their backsides."
He then added: "Beeyotch!"

Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors and miss.
